1991 MOFFETT VINEYARD - ESTATE
Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking Information
The 1991 growing season started with a very wet spring and cool early summer months. The bud set was good and it looked like a healthy size crop. The later part of the summer warmed up nicely and stayed pretty consistent. Due to the crop size and the mild summer, the 1991 growing season turned out to be one of the longest in the history of the Napa Valley. The fruit ripened evenly and the quality of the juice was one of the best we’ve seen in quite a few years. The Moffett Vineyard was harvested on October 21st and 22nd.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of ripe blackberries are highlighted with a touch of anise and chocolate. The wine has herbaceous notes of tea supported by toasty oak. On the palate the flavors are of lush blackberry fruit with soft but dense grape and barrel tannins. This combination gives the wine both a pleasing intensity and a graceful finish.
